Crime Prevention & Public Safety

Citizen involvement is one of the best deterrents to crime in a community. Report crimes that occur in your community to the dispatch center for your area or to your local law enforcement agency.  If you don't know who your law enforcement agency is, use the Riverside Sheriff's Stations lookup tool. 

Citizens may also submit an anonymous tip using the Sheriff's CrimeTips online form.

Crime Statistics

You can find crime and registered sex offender data for areas patrolled by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and for other law enforcement agencies in Riverside County at the CrimeReports website (see above). The website displays a map with flags for a variety of crimes and allows you to select which crimes to display for any 30-day date range within the prior six months. 

Type the address or city and state you wish to see then press the search button next to the address box. If you don't see any crime flags on the map, try zooming in or out. Use the "Advanced Search" in the gray bar to select the date range within the past six months, and to select any of the crime types to be displayed. You can also print a list of the crimes by clicking the "Show Details" button.

Due to report processing times, recent specific crime incidents may take 5-10 days to appear on the CrimeReports website.
